There's other more recent ones too I'm sure. 

They all suck in one way or another.  Even F-Secure's gui one sucks.  For
example, it uses the GUI thread to do all of its work.  Now it's
microsoft's fault that they have a single-threaded UI.  But F-Secure is
being just as short-sighted using that single-thread to do their
computational work.  If you receive a large file, your GUI becomes choppy. 
But best of all -- suppose you're on a modem, and you're typing away at
f-secure ssh, and then your modem connection drops.  Win95 pops up a "do
you want to reconnect?"  dialogue.  If you time it right, you'll get a
complete system freezeup because the GUI thread is blocked on a TCP event,
but that event won't happen until you can click on the "reconnect"
button...  and that won't happen because... you're deadlocked!
